Stranger than Fiction - Kate Peters
The American landscape has influenced photographers for many years. The homogenisation of many middle American towns has meant that chain stores and chain restaurants dominate much of the landscape. Kate is interested in how we contribute to personalising our surrounding environments, asserting our individuality both consciously and subconsciously on a place and the ways in which we exist within these spaces. It was her intention to seek out expressions of individuality within areas that are gradually being taken over by shopping malls and fast food chains.
Photographed in a number of locations across the USA these images are united by their expression of human nature, alluding to the history of a place and the marks we make.
Kate Peters was born in Coventry, England in 1980 she studied Photography at Falmouth College of Arts, Cornwall. After completing her degree she moved to London where she spent 4 years assisting Nadav Kander. She now works on her own projects and commissions.
